What does a programme look like?
Generous Giving Programmes usually
span three or four Sundays, planned in your church by a small group who meet separately
to the PCC. The first Sunday launches the
programme, and information packs are given out to all members of your
worshipping community, which include information about your church, planned
giving, and prayer. On the final Sunday of your programme, response forms are collected, and offered during worship. Throughout the programme,
generosity themed events and materials can be woven into community life and
worship, including prayers, preaching, discipleship courses, liturgy, and social
events. After the programme has ended, the small planning team will evaluate the process and feed back to the PCC, and send a thank you letter to all members of the worshipping community.
